I-45 CRASH UPDATE–MAJOR TRAFFIC JAM

1:20 p.m. The 18-wheeler crash on I-45 between SH 242 and FM 1488 is still an active scene.

Because the 18-wheeler went through the concrete barrier separating north and southbound lanes, both sides of the interstate are affected.

Northbound AND southbound traffic on I-45 is now reduced to 1 lane on each side and traffic is backed up to the Harris County line on the northbound side and well into Conroe on the southbound side.

Feeder road traffic is almost at a complete stop.

The scene is expected to be cleared between 45 minutes to an hour from now, but it will take even longer for traffic to begin moving normally.

We’ll post more information as it becomes available.

MCPR is on the scene and will post photos/video later.
